Yellowknife’s Explorer Hotel, long a cornerstone of the Northern Hospitality Industry, is set to unveil its latest expansion with a grand opening on March 6, 2019. This latest edition will see an addition of 72 new deluxe rooms, bringing the total to 259. A beautiful addition to The Explorer’s conference facilities with a stunning view of downtown, will help grow demand for Yellowknife as a tourism and conference destination.
Last year saw a record number of visitors to the Northwest Territories. Owner Doug Cox says that Yellowknife has natural competitive advantages. “We’re in such a beautiful and pristine environment,” he says.
It’s our beautiful northern environment that Doug and The Explorer Hotel set out to highlight when designing the new spaces. The large Aurora Signature Suite on the eighth floor offers unparalleled views of the city and its natural surroundings including its own deck for observing the aurora or hosting one-of-a-kind private functions.
